    Sunday marks the first night of Hanukkah and celebrities far and wide are taking to social media to share the beginnings of their celebration. The eight-day Jewish holiday is known as "the festival of lights" and usually kicks off in late November or mid-December, meaning Jewish people around the world are celebrating earlier than usual. This year, it falls on the same weekend as the Thanksgiving holiday for Americans. Because show business attracts people from all cultures, religions and backgrounds, many take to social media to celebrate the holiday with their fellow Jewish followers. As a result, each year social media is flooded with stars showing off their lit menorahs and wishing each other well as they document all the usual traditions throughout the season.  Luckily, 2021 is no different. To help keep track of all of the fan-favorite stars who celebrate Hanukkah this year, below is a rundown of the celebrities who have publicly posted about the holiday this year.

    More than three-fourths of Americans are worried inflation will affect their winter, with 51 per cent concerned they 'won't be able to afford what they need during the holidays,' a new poll reveals. A Yahoo/YouGov survey taken the week before Thanksgiving shows 77 per cent of Americans feel inflation is affecting their lives – and 57 per cent blame it on President Joe Biden. Among Democratic voters, 25 per cent say Biden is not doing enough to address inflation and another 39 per cent say they aren't sure. This means that 64 per cent of the president's own party don't have much confidence in his response to the inflation crisis. Inflation is hitting three-decade highs in the midst of a supply chain issue exacerbated by worker shortages. From October 2020 until now, prices overall in the U.S. have soared by 6.2 per cent. Republicans say they feel the effects of inflation at a higher rate than Democrats.

    The vast majority of Americans plan to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with individuals outside of their immediate household, an Ipsos/Axios survey released Tuesday found. Overall, 67 percent of Americans plan to see people outside of their immediate household for Thanksgiving, regardless of the vaccination status of themselves or others, representing a shift from last year, as public health officials warned Americans against large gatherings. This year, less than one-third view large gatherings as a moderate or large risk, indicating that concern over the Chinese coronavirus is waning, as that figure stood at 64 percent last year. Per the poll: Nearly one in three (30%) who plan to see friends or family from outside their household are seeing someone who is unvaccinated during Thanksgiving. Another one in five (20%) will be with someone who is considered high risk for contracting COVID-19. Gathering with someone who is unvaccinated jumps to 56% among the unvaccinated, compared to 22% among the vaccinated. Regardless of vaccination status, similar shares will be dining with someone who is high risk. The survey coincides with last...

    (CNN)Diwali wasn't a big part of Radha Patel's childhood growing up in Maryland.Her parents, though Hindu, weren't particularly observant, and while the family attended Diwali celebrations and pujas hosted by other relatives, they didn't necessarily do anything special at home.Now that Patel has two kids of her own, the 38-year-old's outlook on the festival of lights has changed. She wants her children to feel connected to their Indian heritage, so she makes a concerted effort each year to make the holiday feel special for them. Patel and her family take part in common traditions such as performing ritual prayers, decorating the house with lights and drawing rangolis. But they've also adapted some Western traditions, like getting family photos taken for their Diwali cards and exchanging gifts at Diwali instead of Christmas.Radha Patel says she makes an effort each year to ensure that Diwali feels special for her two children."The idea is we're coming together as a community," said Patel, who lives in Dallas.

    A mother-of-eight who refuses to buy her children any Christmas gifts has hit back at critics who branded her 'cold' - insisting that her family's frugal festivities have made her kids happier than ever, while helping her to save $700 a year. Decluttering coach Angie Wipf, 35, from Alberta, Canada, spent several years buying upwards of 40 Christmas gifts for all of her children, before deciding in December 2019 that enough was enough, instead implementing a limit of just one present per child, which they all exchange among themselves.  But while some social media users accused her of denying her children a proper Christmas celebration, Angie insists that cutting out presents has made her kids' holiday experience even more enjoyable because it reduces the 'stress' of having to focus on so many different toys.    Angie is also able to save around $700 a year since she stopped buying gifts for Finley, 10, Macklin, eight, Vivian, seven, Cruze, five, Cedar, four, twins Wilder and Stryker, three, and Hawk, one. Instead of giving gifts herself, Angie gives her children the chance to...

    MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks sure didn’t get much time to celebrate their first NBA championship n a half-century. Just three months after Giannis Antetokoumpo’s 50-point performance secured a title-clinching victory over the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, the Bucks will be raising their championship banner and beginning a new season on Oct. 19. The offseason was particularly brief for Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday, who left for Tokyo shortly after the championship parade and won gold medals with the U.S. Olympic team. “It was crazy,” Holiday said. They got just a little time to come home and rest before beginning the process of trying to repeat. They realize the necessity of maintaining the same tenacity that helped carry them to the franchise’s first championship since 1971. The Bucks open the season against the Brooklyn Nets, who would have eliminated them in the second round of the 2021 playoffs if Kevin Durant’s foot hadn’t crept across the 3-point arc while making a shot in Game 7. “It’s a challenge,” Middleton said. “I think we have...

Earlier the president was driven from the first couple's Delaware home to the Kennett Square Golf and Country Club, just across the state line in Pennsylvania, during a holiday weekend even as the president's legislative agenda remains stalled and a supply chain crisis casts a shadow over the looming holiday season. Owens, 42, and King, 37, only revealed they were dating last month. King, the former wife of baseball star Jim Edmonds, posted a photo of the couple hugging. 'Trying my best to avoid any cheesy introductions like ‘my main squeeze’ … so just meet my man,' she wrote to her legions of fans. King has three children from her marriage to Edmonds, which ended in 2009.  Owens is a Los Angeles-based attorney...
    The nation's top infectious disease expert says he will be spending Christmas with his family and encouraged vaccinated people to celebrate the holiday with their loved ones. Over the weekend, Dr Anthony Fauci had said it was 'too soon' to say whether Americans can gather for Christmas. But just one day later, in an appearance on CNN on Monday, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases said his comments were 'misinterpreted' and that he was not telling people to forego family get-togethers.   'The best way to assure that we'll be in good shape as we get into the winter would be to get more and more people vaccinated,' Fauci said.  'That was misinterpreted as my saying we can't spend Christmas with our families, which was absolutely not the case.  'I will be spending Christmas with my family, I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family.' In an interview on CNN on Monday, Dr Anthony Fauci (above) said his comments on Sunday about how it was...
